DoggyStyle: Storing the Stuff

Our dogs have a lot of stuff. Between their rain coats, cold-weather coats, backpacks , toys, and treats they take up a lot of room in our urban 2-bedroom condo. We have been working to find storage solutions that are practical enough to hold our their stuff, but actually look nice and fit in with our decor.
I found these storage bins at Target. We have several lined in a row, and they can hold the pooches' assortment of goods. I like the size, making it almost compartmentalized to keep all coats, costumes, and toys in their own boxes.
I also like these bins because they're gender neutral, and they fit in nicely with our decor:I had bought ours on sale, but they have some other nice bins here, here, and here. We also use these containers from The Container Store which are inexpensive and simple.We need to keep the treats within reach at all times. We bought a set of contemporary canisters, like these here, where their treats can become mini "works of art".

I'm surprised. I figured that your dogs had their own closets to hang their clothing.

We also found some great bins at IKEA :) we have this bookshelf http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40047675 and can use any of these that fit in the blocks perfectly to store the pups goodies http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30150521
